Elderly residents in Moray are being given the chance to make their own lino prints for the first time at a special workshop.
They are being invited to attend the lino printing sessions at Hanover Housing, on Linkwood View in Elgin, on Tuesday afternoon.
The free creative session is part of First Time for Everything, a programme developed by the Royal Voluntary Service and Prudential to give older residents the opportunity to try a new activity and socialise.
Hayley Anderson, of Lossiemouth-based Buff and Blue Prints – who will be leading the session – said crafting is beneficial for the health and wellbeing of the elderly in a variety of ways, including improving dexterity in their limbs and reducing stress.
She said: “I am delighted to be working with the Royal Voluntary Service on their First Time for Everything project.
“Lino printing is a fun and versatile craft which gives great results even if you do not consider yourself an artist.
“I will be helping participants try their hand at lino stamp carving and greeting card printing.”
